Few more days...
Another couple days have come and gone.
Today was one of those bad days at work... some days I have it and some days I just don't. This morning, early... like calendar time... I realized that I just didn't have it. No patience at all. Which is NOT a good thing when you teach 5 year olds and when you have no specials and when you have 3 of the most difficult children ever. So... I made it through the day, but it was one of the days where I felt like I didn't do anything but yell. I hate those days. I just feel so stressed and tired and hating myself... I promised myself I would read my discipline books tonight to try to come up with some tricks tomorrow.
I find myself constantly saying "We've done this for 150 days now. You should know what we're doing!"... but really, I know that they don't have a concept of what that really means. Ah well... tomorrow is another day and I'm sure it will go better. I hope. :)
Last week my aide was out all week. The children were FANTASTIC. AMAZING. I didn't have a single problem. They were quiet, on task, etc. all week long. It was at the point where I didn't know why I had actually invited parents in to help--- I didn't feel like I needed them. I wonder why they're so different this week.
Today we got $50 to The Learning Tree! I'm so excited!
Oh... and while doing calendar this AM I realized how freakin' close I am to my test. Woohoo!! I'm dying to start feeling different-- it was about 3 or 4 days before my test last time that I noticed that I felt "weird"... so this weekend I'll be crossing my fingers!! :)
